GRETNA – A local finance company is suing a client it claims has failed to repay a personal loan.

Springleaf Financial Services of Louisiana Inc. filed suit against Kerry Jackson in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 15.

Springleaf alleges that on Oct. 1, 2014 it entered into a contract with Jackson to provide him with a personal loan in the amount of $3,128.63. The plaintiffs contend the loan was to be repaid over a 36 month period beginning Nov. 15, 2014. Springleaf asserts Jackson only made three payments on the land with the last one being provided in January 2015. He still owes $2,982.72, the suit says.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for repayment and attorney’s fees.

Springleaf Financial Services of Louisiana Inc. is represented by Tony Dooley of the New Orleans-based The Dooley Law Office LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division G Judge E. Adrian Adams.

Case no. 748-713.
